We would also like to thank the referees and the table officials for a stunning job.
To the players and coaches, the level of the game was truly amazing and the sportsmanship – top class. The camaraderie among the players is something to be proud of. Well done boys.

To the parents who came to support the boys, we are really grateful. We know that some drove long distances to attend the tournament and we acknowledge the passion.

Well done to Kearsney and Enjabulweni who each contributed three players each to the All Start Team. Muhle Bophela was chosen as the MVP – a well deserved achievement.

The rugby team both juniors and seniors traveled to Nelspruit on the weekend of the 4th to 6th of March 2016. We were hosted by Curro Nelspruit and played them in 2 different formats of the game of Rugby. Our first games were on Friday the 4th where we played 10s for both juniors and seniors separately and the results were as follows: Juniors won their match 22-17, the boys displayed courage as this was the first game of the season and for many of the boys it was their first ever Rugby match. Seniors lost their match 39-17 in what was a tough physical encounter. On Saturday the 5th we played 2 games of 7s for both age groups and the results were as follows: Juniors won the first game convincingly 30-0; they narrowly lost their second game 17-10.

Inter-House Athletics

The 2016 edition of the High School athletics inter-house competition was held at Mavuso Sports Stadium. The day started off rather gloom but soon warmed up to very fierce competition. The skies clear and offered pristine competition conditions.

Never in the history of the school has the competition been so close and this intensity was maintained from start to finish. This culminated in the first ever draw for first place between the Eagles and the Falcons – 502 points and the Hawks sitting at 324 points.

All the members of the various teams had gone out of their way to make this the beautiful day it turned out to be. The cheer leaders in the different houses clad in house regalia, the wonderful cheers amazingly reverberating throughout the massive stadium, the support from all those in the grand stand, the outstanding effort put in by the athletes on the track or field and the unprecedentedly efficient way the house captains ran their houses, all combined to produce a day to remember.

It, therefore, comes as no surprise that 34 records were broken on the day. Congratulations must go to Banelisi Dlamini, Hope Makin, Bong’menzi Mbingo and Yenzo Lukhele who each broke three records.

Congratulations to the whole school in fact and thank you for a wonderful fun filled day. We look forward to even greater effort for a first position in the inter-schools to be held on the 2nd of April at Mavuso Sports Centre.

High School Inter-House Athletics Standards

Enjabulweni pupils took part in the first ever inter-house standards competition on Saturday the 23rd of January 2016. Every pupil took part in all seven events (100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, shot put, high jump and long jump).

While competition was against a set standard in each of the events, the athletes could not help but rekindle some old rivalries and spark off new ones with the arrival of new pupils across the grades. It was wonderful to watch competition moved from primary school to high school between old foes now competing in the same colours.

One shudders to think of what will happen to records that have stood, in some cases, for many years considering the quality of performances and the healthy competition we always encourage at Enjabulweni School.

While there are a lot of positives, there were also some issues we would like to improve on. Top in the agenda is full attendance followed by support from parents. It would really be great to see the banks of our fields as well as the stands filled with parents supporting their children.

On the whole a wonderful day augmented by the wonderful weathered we were blessed with in the day.

Looking forward to the inter house meeting at Mavuso on the 4th of February 2016.

St Peter’s Sports and Cultural Festival

The Enjabulweni Boys’ Soccer team travelled to the annual St Peter’s Soccer Tournament. The boys were confident after winning the Independent Schools Soccer Tournament at U-Tech during the second term. The tournament included thirty-two schools and clubs in total. The boys qualified for the plate quarterfinals where they beat the hosts (St Peter’s) 3 – 1. The semi-finals were a tightly contested affair with Enjabulweni prevailing 3 – 2 against Uplands College. In the finals, Enjabulweni came up against a talented Krugersdorp team. The boys played extremely well and won the game 2 – 1.

It is very encouraging to note that the team is made up of mostly grade 8 – 11 which bodes well for the future of Enjabulweni Soccer. Special mention must go to Zweli Sibandze, the captain, for leading by example with a stellar defensive display throughout the tournament.

G. Mhlanga.

First Team Coach.
